Four Area Teens Survive Fiery Crash

Four teenagers from Westport and Fairfield escaped a fiery rollover crash Friday night on Hyde Lane near Long Lots Elementary School.  The 16-year-old male driver lost control of a Mercedes sport utility vehicle going around a curve in wet weather. The car became wedged between a stonewall and a tree and its engine compartment burst into flames. Three of the teens—the driver and two females in the back—managed to get out by themselves, but the fourth—a male riding in the front passenger seat—was trapped briefly before a passerby rescued him through the roof. The victims were taken to Norwalk Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Exclusive photo
